Communities - you run Road Safety Week!
Are you a community campaigner or club or society leader? Then register now to take part in Road Safety Week!
Road safety is a community issue. Dangers such as fast drivers and lack of safe crossing places for pedestrians blight communities across the UK and cause carnage, particularly among children, young people and the elderly. Road Safety Week is the ideal opportunity for you to get local people together to put an end to road deaths and injuries in your region by running your own Road Safety Week campaign.
It's easy to take part in Road Safety Week. Join hundreds of other community groups signing up to run a road safety campaign or fundraiser for Brake in Road Safety Week, and we'll stay in touch with you along the way, helping you to run a great event. To get your online action pack of tips, ideas and downloadable resources to use during the Week, register today!
If you can't run an event but you want to help Brake, please support us by making a secure online donation or call us on 01484 559909 to donate by credit card.
Here are a few ideas for getting involved in Road Safety Week to get you started:
